    "Remove selected clips" not as per CS6 PDF

    Guy Burns Level 1

      On page 335 of the CS6 PDF it states:

       

      Remove all effects from a clip

      1. Select the clip in a Timeline panel. To make sure that only one clip is selected, click an empty space in the Timeline, then click the clip. Click a spot in the time ruler above the selected clip to move the current-time indicator to that location.
      2. Do one of the following:

      From the Effect Controls panel menu, choose Remove Effects

        • Select Clip > Remove Effects
        • Right-click a clip in a Timeline panel, and select Remove Effects.

       

      I followed the steps and it worked, but wanted to see what would happen if the Playhead was NOT above the clip (bit in blue). Didn't matter where the Playhead was, effects were always removed from the selected clip.

       

      In CS6, by not moving the playhead as stated, is something undesirable likely to happen? Or is this an error in the PDF?

          I think the direction of moving the Playhead to the selected clip

          is for the benefit of the user... to be able to see that the change

          has taken place (the effects have been removed).

           

          You are correct that the commands work with the selected clip

          not being currently displayed in the Program Monitor (by not

          moving the Playhead to the selected clip).

          In CS6, by not moving the playhead as stated, is something undesirable likely to happen?

          The only possibly undesirable thing is that you will not see the change

          (the removal of effects) occur, and may lose track of what you've done.

          Or is this an error in the PDF?

          I'm not sure you can classify this as an error or not?

          The direction seems for the purpose of allowing a learning user

          to see what is happening when the commands are used.

            Thanks for the info. I asked about this because there was another situation where if the Playhead wasn't in the right place, the function wouldn't work. Here it was the opposite, so I thought: "Is something happening that I don't know about".

              I thought: "Is something happening that I don't know about".

              Regarding the CS6 Documentation .pdf...

              I don't think there is anything happening that you don't know about.
